In Rockies, Some Of Last Winter’s Snow Persists

Scientists who monitor the effects of global warming are watching glaciers shrink all over the world but this year could go down as an exception in parts of the Rocky Mountains.

Autumn is here but not all of the unusually deep snow that accumulated last winter has melted away in the high country of the Rockies. Some glaciers and snowfields actually grew in volume this year, an exception to the trend of mountain ice dwindling away year after year.

Scientists have measured new ice in Montana’s Glacier National Park and atop Colorado’s Front Range mountains. There is anecdotal evidence of snowfield growth in northwest Wyoming.

They say the new ice isn’t nearly deep enough to significantly offset the huge volumes that have melted away in recent years.
